the shooter is identified. he is 20-year-old ryan lanza. we are trying to figure out. we have some pictures and identifications. we want to make sure we have the right guy before we put his picture up on the air. he's now the short and apparently according to other reports he lived in newtown, connecticut in fairfield county. because the other reports were police went to his home and reportedly found a bodynside that home that they are investigating the possibility the body may have been the mother of 20-year-old ryan lanza. we do know that in fact you can see directly below me, this is a picture of 20-year-old ryan lanza. you said earlier he had a connection to the school. the school at 9:30 goes into lockdown. before you can get in the front door you have to be buds in. they can see what you look like then you give them a reason why you want to come in. if this guy was buds in, it's unclear. we are being told ryan lanza is 24 years old. this would change things. we were figuring out how would a 20-year-old have a connection to the school if he didn't work at the school. if you are 20 year
at the moment. and his other son, ryan lanza, age 24, who was the person who many thought was the guilty party on this early on, was living in hoboken, new jersey. we wanted to bring that you because we're trying to piece this together throughout the entire day because here in connecticut, police say there is still no sign, at least publicly anyway, there has been no sign of a motive. but we are learning more about 20-year-old adam lanza as we move throughout the hour. here is a picture said to be from 2005 which would mean around the age of 14 shown here. sources telling fox news he may have had a developmental disorder and people who knew the shooter now describe him as smart but, quote, very remote socially. according to state police, the evidence now suggests that no one from the school allowed him to get inside the building around 9:30 in the morning friday morning. instead somehow he forced his way in. it's not clear exactly how. today a library clerk confirmed she and others inside the school learned that something was wrong once they heard the gun fire come across the intercom. >> the
lanza, age 24. we now believe the shooter was not ryan lanza. ryan lanza was taken into custody, we're told, earlier in the day. that perhaps his brother was the suspected shooter, perhaps the connecticut state police, lieutenant paul vance, will clarify this. but we're getting more information on what's going on. so we do know that lanza's mother was among those killed, found dead at the -- at her home near the school. she was a teacher at this school, the sandy hook elementary school. when you heard all these details coming in and you've studied these kinds of mass killings over the years, what did you think? >> to be frank, wolf, as i was hearing the early reports and you had many news organizations reporting who was where, who was killed, who was the shooter. and then when the police did their briefing, they wouldn't confirm it. that told me immediately that there's a lot of false or conflicting or confusing information being put out and the police were still in the process of trying to sort out exactly what they had and exactly the identity of that shooter. so that's why oftent
home. 24 year old ryan lanza, brother of the alleged shooter and i can tell you less than an hour ago, police rolled up their tape that was block the entrance of the building. we hear from a reliable federal source that when police were surrounding the area earlier this afternoon. ryan and his girl friend showed up and that's when they realized everything that was going on. and he was hand cuffed and taken away and we are hear aring from the fbi that hoe and his father were released and they were cooperative throughout all of this. and we are hearing from residents here that are rattled by all of this. they say the bomb squad was running through the hallways today. and a day care in the area was on lock down and parents were getting e-mails saying don't worry about your kids that is it what is going o. greta, they are happy that things are calming down and thankful that their kids are all right. >> you know anything about the relationship between the father and the shooter or the brother and the shooter or everything the father and mother who was shot today? >> we have heard a lot of
, the name of the shooter was initially reported to be ryan lanza, the brother of the shooting and he was take be into custody and speaking and cooperating with authorities and released. it is believed that adam lanza, the shooter, had taken ryan lanza's identification in the school with him. and every time there's a press conference, we get a little more information and a little more the puzzle although we may never know exactly why this senseless episode happened. jamie. >> jamie: although at the police conference, they did say they have effective evidence that they found that might explain motive. if you can ever explain such a thing. they've done a lot of interviews in the last 24 hours, molly. and there was one survivor that could prove key to this. what have you learned actually happened during this tragedy? >> yeah, the survive you're talking about was a shooting victim that got out and made it to the hospital and is expected to recover and they say that what she has to say about what happened inside that building will be invaluable to them as they try to unroughly the facts an
was identified as a ryan lanza. later we learned it was an adam lanza. the reason for that is police have gone to hoboken, new jersey, where they actually picked up adam lanza, the gunman's brother. they took him in for questioning. it turns out he is ryan lanza. he told police that it was very possible that his brother was actually carrying his id on him today. no idea why. but that's something that they determined. they've also determined that that brother to their satisfaction did not know about this potential attack or had no part in it. so at this point, he is not being considered a suspect. other information that we're learning also, nbc's pete williams reported earlier that the guns used in this attack were registered to adam lanza's mother and were legally purchased apparently. and we have also learned originally it was believed she is a kindergarten teacher here at the school, it was believed she was killed in her classroom at the school. we also learned that there was a separate crime scene not far from the school, a home where a person was found dead. we have now learned that the pe
